Sweden wins Alpine Team Event


After a less than satisfying Olympic performance the Swedish team took revenge in the Alpine Team Event held on home snow in Åre! Team Sweden beat Team France in a dramatic Big Final with 3-1. More than 1500 spectators were on site when the competition began at 16 CET. The crowd was in good spirits already before the race, enjoying a lovely sunny Friday afternoon outside. And things soon got even better…

The Swedish team was not the least bothered not to have competed in the earlier events at the Finals. To the contrary, they were confident and ready to charge, beating the reigning Olympic team event champions Switzerland in the first round.

The crowd's excitement grew visibly run after run and the atmosphere in the National Arena was phenomenal. The racers, happy to be back on home snow, responded with ever more outstanding performances. They left no doubt about the better team in the semi-final against Germany, advancing into the final against France. The Swedish team was again unbeatable in the final, reclaiming their position as one of the top 3 Alpine Team Event nations ahead of the home World Championships next year.

Racing continues Saturday with the men's giant slalom and ladies' slalom. Regardless of results, the atmosphere in the Arena is bound to be extraordinary. Five Swedes will start: André Myhrer, Matts Olsson, Frida Hansdotter, Anna Swenn-Larsson and Estelle Alphand. Now that the Swedes have warmed up with a win the only remaining question is how exceptional the FIS World Cup Finals 2018 can really become for Team Sweden…

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46 CETPressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
